Apply to be a Wake Forest Mellon Environmental Justice Journalism Fellow
The Wake Forest University Environmental and Epistemic Justice Initiative, funded by the Mellon Foundation, is a research, teaching and community engagement project that focuses on environmental and epistemic justice. It will host a 2023 Summer Institute for four to six early- to mid-career journalists as the inaugural class of Wake Forest Mellon Environmental Justice Journalism Fellows.
The program will highlight issues of race, racialization and the environment at the local and regional level with possible applicability to other communities across the United States. Issues of environmental justice often significantly impact health, and health journalists are encouraged to apply.
The program’s goal is to improve coverage of the many facets of environmental justice journalism while aiding in diversifying the ranks of environmental journalism.
